3 DAY NOTICE TO PAY RENT OR VACATE RESIDENTIAL
FREE PRINTABLE FORMS
More Information on how and when to use the 3 Day Notice to Vacate (Residential) free eviction form
This is a 3 day notice form to be used by landlords for residential properties. By using this form, your tenants are entitled to either pay rent, or vacate the property within 3 days. An eviction notice form like this has to conform to the state (in this case California) and meet the criteria for eviction in order to be processed. Here we will explain how and when you can use the eviction notice.
If you have been dealing with ongoing rent-related problems with a tenant or tenants, then you can present this 3 day notice.
You can use this notice if:
- If the tenant(s) has failed to pay the rent on the due date that was agreed upon in the contract.
- If the tenant(s) has been defaulting on his/her rent for some time with no prior indication of a payment time or date.
- If the tenant(s) has not paid the rent in full and has not stated any clear reason for it.
Once you have downloaded the notice, there are specific instructions that you should follow in order to ensure your compliance with the California Department of Consumer Affairs. The instructions are as follows:
- The notice should be presented to the tenant in writing.
- The notice has to have the full name of the tenant(s).
- The notice has to have the address of the property rented out.
- The notice has to clearly state that the tenant should either pay the rent or move out from the property within 3 days.
- The notice has to be signed by the landlord, or alternatively, by his/her agent and must state the date on which it was issued.
- The notice has to have a physical address where the tenant can mail the rent to. Note, the mailing address cannot be the same as the eviction address (unless landlord lives in the same property).
- The notice must also include a contact phone number for the tenant to reach the landlord/manager.
- The notice must also include days and times when the tenant can pay the rent. Ex. Monday – Sunday/9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
How to count the three days
Once you present the notice to your tenant(s), you can start counting the three days from the first day that you served the noticed. If the third day arrives on a Saturday, Sunday, or a public holiday, then the three day period will conclude on the following Monday, or the following non-holiday. In other words, the three days are counted in regards to three working days. For instance, if you have issued the 3 day eviction notice on a Friday, then the first day will complete at the time you presented the notice to the tenant(s) on Monday, and the 3 day period will hence conclude on a Wednesday.
